A thorough knowledge of the dental structure is essential to the understanding of dental defects and pathology, as teeth composition and structure are significant factors, with an important role in hardness value increase or, on the contrary, decrease. Hardness value, mineral contents and density decrease gradually from the teeth surface towards the junction. Hardness analysis and study is important in order to understand the manner in which mastication forces are distributed on the tooth.
